Loved this book. Maybe not because of any literary merit, it might be complex for the target audience as there is a storyline where a Binky is imaging himself as a superhero, interspersed. My nephews will enjoy it because it is about baseball. Within the story is a lesson of hard work and physical therapy, which I think is great.

Easy beginning chapter book with all the well-known Arthur characters. Could have been a Saturday morning cartoon script turned book, or the other way around. Presents a lesson about warming up before a sports event. Binky doesn't and suffers the consequences. Kids who like baseball and Arthur would probably enjoy this. I see it as reading practice and not much more.

I like how Arthur works hard. If he's tired, he doesn't quit and he keeps going. And then he might succeed!

I like the "Good Sports" series because it teaches good lessons about sports and being good people. I like how the author includes daydreams by different people, not just Arthur.
